A replica of her 1934 namesake, the 2012 launch of 39.95M Holland Jachtbouw Rainbow is the latest sloop in a glorious J Class revival. Rainbow, which combines new technology with classic style, can reach 15 knots under sail and sleeps eight guests.

The Amels Sea Axe concept has found a new flagship with this 67.15m, launched by Dutch yard Damen Shipyard's the largest Sea Axe yet.

She was sold, and project managed during her build, by Moran Yacht & Ship.

Reymond Langton Design seamlessly combined a subtle African theme with 1950s glamour for the interior of this 73.51m 2012 Nobiskruglaunch, while its exterior styling is distinctly masculine. Mogambo sleeps 12 guests and features wide open spaces inside and out, including a sundeck with gym, spa pool and alfresco cinema. Mogambo is also availble for charterand is managed by Hill Robinson.
4. Aslec 4 | Stand N04, Quai de lHirondelle
With an near-vertical stem bow, a sleek Tommaso Spadolini exterior and a cool, modern Rémi Tessier interior, this 45.37m 2012 Rossi Navi launch has a futuristic edge. She sleeps 12 and features a 70m2 aft deck.
5. Step One | Stand T06, T central
